What could you bring to the board of a flourishing theatre central to the community of Portsmouth?
The New Theatre Royal is a creative centre and cultural champion based in the heart of Portsmouth, fostering creativity, connectivity, and the articulation of ideas, to stimulate healthier, happier and more inclusive communities.
Working with and for the city of Portsmouth, the theatre seeks to create a programme which engages with and reflects the vitality of the city. Throughout the year, the New Theatre Royal presents and produces a diverse range of performances and is constantly seeking out new partnerships to increase the offering and create a strong ‘Made in Portsmouth’ brand.
They are currently recruiting for Trustees with accountancy and legal skills to join the Board at a particularly interesting time in their development.
How would you benefit?
Becoming a Board member is a fascinating way to engage in the cultural and not-for-profit sector. It’s a role which will give back just as much as you put in and often much, much more. A Board role will reward the ambitious with a wealth of personal and professional skills which are valuable for both work and personal life. It will empower you with a new sense of contribution in the pursuit of a wider purpose.
Trustees with accountancy and legal skills
It is an important time in the theatre’s life as they develop their strategy to play an even bigger role in Portsmouth’s community. They believe passionately in the strength of theatre to transform and enrich peoples’ lives and are committed to increasing community participation and engagement. With that in mind, and an ambitious new Chair in place, they are now seeking to bring a range of new skills to the board and are looking for experienced professionals with experience in accountancy and law.
This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in helping to create and deliver New Theatre Royal’s vison for the future. They are looking for people with accountancy and legal skills to provide support and expertise to help steer critical elements of their work and who share their ambition to significantly grow and develop their offer to the community.
